MVFR or VFR ?



  • I see "blue" airport coding, with indication MVFR,
    but I think it is wrong as cloud cover is not BKN or OVC.

    MVFR criteria represent a ceiling between 1,000 and 3,000 feet.
    On METAR cloud cover SCT020 is not CEILING at 020,
    as ceiling means cover more than half of the sky (more than 4 oktas).
    SCT is 3 to 4 octas, not more than 4 octas.
    So, when cloud cover is SCT bellow 030 the flight rules are VFR , not MVFR.

    Same here (Sicily, Italy)
